thank the team that put all this together. i wanted to take a moment and give a shout out to jill raycauft and lucas eckrode and dijon, those are the key players that made this thing happen for you. they are the ones that put together the exercises, they were the ones that were here to 10:00 last night getting this thing set up. in particular for this next one i want to join ben tanner. ben joined the facility to work on cardiac care survival. i said, ben, i have a project for you. i'm not sure if he's forgiven me for assigning him yet, but he did a great job. anybody who was out there, saw it, experienced it, we were able to see the shock trauma platoon, see the landing craft coming ashore, we put medical personnel into helicopters provided by the marine corps, flew them down to moffatt where they had an overview perspective how things work from a military perspective, they saw a c130 outfitd for patient transport by the national guard. they got to see the national guard's capabilities down there, the coast guard's capabilities. they got experience of what the marine corps has to

action. i know jill raycauft and lucas ekrode have taken this to heart so we do have a road map for next year. read the after action. no. 2, captain houston mentioned it already, it's think open architecture. i noticed that departures for the military, our communication is encrypted, when you are doing humanitarian assistance or even here on national soil, you need to be able to communicate. so that was a take away, probably unencrypted plain text communication. think open architecture. the last one that i have is definitely familiarize yourself with disca, it's coming to the forefront, communications quite specifically. that means knowing what civilian authorities utilize in terms of frequencies and wave forms and that's not something that we do every day as communicators. so it provides an opportunity for a more well-round ed case and i certainly got into that territory this year. thank you.
